There are essentially two kinds of models: Those who do it professionally and everyone else. As most pro models are usually on their game, this blog (my first) is about working with "everyone else". You can of course apply all of these tips to pros as well.First a bit about my experience. My portraiture background is mostly in magazine editorial and also the corporate space. I've shot more than 500 editorials for Entrepreneur Magazine South Africa in the past ten years and... continue reading
Search results for "emotion"
I'd like to greet everyone, especially those, who like football! The best European leagues are about to start. We were really missing it for the last almost 3 months. We lacked the emotions and tension, anticipation and postive stress. The super stars from all over the world are arriving to their home clubs in order to give a start to the 9 months marathone, called national championship. The best of the best are ready to carress our eye with their skills, make us admire their talents and keep exclaiming... continue reading
This is a milestone blog for me and I am silly, giddy, ridiculous happy. You'd think I won a gigantic lottery jackpot and my own private island, and figured how to manifest world peace, I'm so pleased with myself.You see, after a little more than three years, my earnings balance finally reached payout level, and in the most bizarre and enlightening of ways for me. I am growing!Just over three weeks ago, I was having a rough time in life, and had been, for a couple of months, actually. It... continue reading
Thinking about photography made me realize the implications of this strong word. Apart from pictures or photos, photography has a greater and deeper meaning, it has that little extra which sometimes can make you shed a tear or laugh as loud as you can, smile, feel compassion and even make your heart startle.They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I think it's more than that. It can generate a world of emotions and feelings, like a drop in a glass of water. It's all about the moment and... continue reading
Hello to all users and friends!To my great excitement and happiness, yesterday I saw my image to another accepted for this contest!

If you really appreciated my work, I ask you to support me!Greetings and a heartfelt thanks to all of you! continue reading
I'm a mother, monster-chaser, superhero, wife, cook, artist, and photographer just to name a few. Everyday things/issues have the potential to spell disaster and ruin a sunshiney day. We have but to appreciate the things around us that we have no control over to really see the world. We need not travel the far corners of the earth to see beauty. An unexpected smile from your child while she plays in the morning sun on a summer day, the way the sunlight absorbs into her skin making her radiant can... continue reading
Monotone photos are powerfully simple and convey emotion like few types of photos can.With all extraneous color eliminated, we are left only with light and shape.Add to that a single color and the image is more powerful than its individual parts.In previous posts I’ve discussed the color red and the emotions it conveys.Let’s talk about some other colors for a moment.Blue for instance, conveys cold, lonely, depressed emotions.“I’m feeling blue today,” is a popular phrase in... continue reading
Human blood, love, anger, sin, passion, and danger, are all symbolized by the color red.Additionally, in some cultures in the East red symbolized prosperity and luck.Several studies indicate that red carries the strongest reaction of all the colors, with the level of reaction decreasing gradually with orange, yellow, and white, respectively.In photography, the color red screams to be noticed, and can be used to create powerful, and sellable images. It’s no wonder then that designers utilize... continue reading
It is rare that we see any animals just gazing into the distance in deep thought. In fact, most animals we see practically have emotionless faces, their appearances bear almost no emotional appearance that make us empathize with them. Some animals, especially mammals, are exceptions to this. They include cats and dogs, and of course, monkeys.One fine Sunday morning I went to this mangrove beach near my hometown in Muar, Malaysia which is famous for its urban macaques. Of the many excited and agitated... continue reading
